Cacharel Designer History:
Bousquet the son of a sewing machine retailer, Jean Louis Henri Bousquet was virtually born into the fashion world in Paris, 1932 and was later properly trained in college school as a tailor. He labored two years professionally as a fashion designer prior to going back to Paris to establish his first fashion house. He drew his first creations in a small studio and set up his fashion house in a garret in the Marais. His following success encouraged him to envisage and establish Cacharel in 1962, a business of ready-to-wear apparel, fragrances and accessories influenced by his distinct perception of women’s social progression. In 1964 he presented the homonym business with a selection of brilliantly colored dresses and blouses that infuriated the fashion world but was indisputably a triumphant name inspired by the garganey, a scarce breeding duck native to Arles, France.
Femininity, lightness, delicate and gentle shades, impressing excellent elements, refinement right down to the smallest aspect, youth and genuineness outline the enlightening transformation smooth blend of conventional and contemporary impacts that have added to the brand's success.
The appearance in Paris of the first blouse series thrilled with its pleasant tones and the disappearing of the popular "pointed darts". It displayed a perspective of a woman who is natural, feminine, stylish and lively. The creation of the seersucker blouse, which evolved into a reference for a era of women, succeeded by the front cover of ELLE magazine in 1963, introduced Cacharel to the world scene.
